Join Chadwick Ginther for a book signing of Thunder Road on Saturday, December 15, 2012 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm at McNally Robinson Booksellers Grant Park by the cash desk.
"Chadwick Ginther is a major new talent. His stunning debut novel grabs you by the throat and shakes you mercilessly; his prose is vivid and sharp and his are settings gritty and terrifyingly real. This is serious fantasy for grownups."
—Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award-winning author of Triggers
In a flash, Ted Callan’s world exploded and amid the flames he saw the incomprehensible, the burning figure of the fire giant Surtur. Before long, Ted learns that the creatures of Norse folklore walk among us and his fate is forever tied to them.
Ted wants nothing more than to have his old life back. No more magic. No more smart-ass gods. To get it, Ted is willing to fight his way through any creature of legend. The problem is, if he succeeds, it might just be the end of the world.
